He said: “Job done now, Ollie has done more than enough to win the championship and he can go into the final weekend of racing with the pressure off and enjoy himself.

"He has done so well this year and deserves his title as he has worked hard in different weather conditions.

"We did lose one round of the series as we had very heavy rain for the Mallory round which caused his class to be cancelled on safety grounds.

"But he has sailed through the rest of the rounds winning every race and we are so proud of his achievements.”

The final round is at the Greenfield Oval near Horncastle on September 30/October 1.
